The Altra Torin 4 just got faster.
Altra took the popular Torin 3.5 and sliced out 2 mm of cushion for a lighter, faster, more responsive ride. Even without those 2 mm, though, the Altra still packs a 26 mm stack height for a protective feel underfoot.
But the changes for the race track didn’t change the shoe’s fit. Altra still used its FootShape fit to give it a wide, foot-shaped toe box that lets your foot splay naturally, and a 0 mm heel-to-toe drop keeps your stance neutral.
At only 9.1 ounces for men and 7.6 ounces for women, the Altra Torin 4 is eager for your fastest miles.

I have worn Altra trail shoes for awhile, but never found a "road shoe" that I liked. The Torin 4 changed my mind. In early indoor use on machines and light weightlifting, it has performed well. The only negative I have seen so far are the ridiculously thin shoestrings.
The Torin has gotten lighter over the years. I like the longevity and cushion of this shoe. Zero drop works for me and with wide feet, I like the extra room in the toe box. I have gotten about 350 miles out of each pair. Would recommend.
Best running shoe ever made, period.
These shoes are great for aerobics, recoveries, and hitting the trail. After getting used to the 0 mm drop of the shoes for a few weeks, I am now consistently using my Torins and they are great shoes.
Fleet Feet is by far the best shoe shopping experience I’ve ever had. They have the best selection and if they don’t have what you need then they’ll get it for you. Always friendly staff and very informative!
